Should anyone see a pair of these on sale anywhere and wants to flip them or has a pair sitting in their closet they want to get rid of, I'm very interested. I've heard of them going for $150-ish at various outlet places in the US which I don't have access to. Preference for earlier distressed blue models made in Japan or the S/S05 ones with silver lame thread, but will consider any variant as long as it hasn't been hemmed. Let me know what you have. Offering around 140ukp/$250 depending on model. PM me or e-mail gp at caffeine org uk. Cheers.
